Navigating Color in Interior Design: The Art of Choosing the Perfect Print

Colour can be the symphony in the quiet room of design, transforming spaces with its different hues and shades. At Sidedish, we believe in embracing colour with intention, especially when it comes to selecting art prints for your interiors.

We know it can sometimes be pretty intimidating, so we’ve put together a quick overview of the things you need to think about when it comes to colour and your space.

Existing Colour Palette
Firstly, consider the existing color palette of your room. Is it a canvas of neutrals or a medley of vibrant shades? Your new art piece should either complement or thoughtfully contrast these existing tones. For neutral spaces, a print with a pop of color can be a striking focal point. Conversely, in a more colorful setting, consider a piece that shares a subtle connection with one of the existing colors to create harmony.

Understanding color psychology is also key. Colors evoke emotions; blues and greens can instill calmness, while reds and oranges might energize. Choose a print that aligns with the atmosphere you wish to create. Is your space a serene retreat or a hub of energy for instance?

Size (and positioning) Matters
Scale and positioning are also crucial. A large, colorful print can dominate a room, so balance it with more subdued elements elsewhere. If opting for smaller prints, consider a gallery wall, blending various hues for a cohesive yet dynamic effect.

Make it your Own
Remember, the art you choose is a reflection of your personality. It should resonate with you, bringing joy and character to your space. Trust your instincts; if a piece speaks to you, it’s likely the right choice for your home.

Color in interior design isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s about creating a feeling, a mood, an extension of oneself. Let your chosen art print be a testament to that philosophy.
